Overall, I had a very positive experience at Makers. It was challenging, and sometimes incredibly frustrating, but my Makers experience helped me to develop both technical and soft skills that have served me well. I'd like to reiterate what others have said - while there are coaches on hand, this is very much self-led learning. You'll only get out what you put in. The Pros: - A solid foundational curriculum that teaches best practices such as TDD and pair programming. - A focus on soft skills such as effective communication within teams, self-regulation, and problem-solving. - Job seeking assistance was awesome, even for me as an international student (Canada) The Cons: - There was wide variability in coaching skills and techniques. It was incredibly frustrating to try to get help from some, while others were very supportive. -The JavaScript curriculum needs to be updated (this may have been resolved since I graduated)
